look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Clear bright gold in color, the pour builds up thick creamy white head that stays with very good retention before slowly subsiding to an everlasting foamy crown and leaving limited amount of lacing.

Mild aroma of floral, woody, and green hop as well as some crisp citrus. Malt is obviously displayed with its bread in kind of Munich malt and sweet caramel.

Pretty clean taste of malt as the backbone of the flavor structure with its sweetness, breadiness, and caramel. Hop discloses in the middle with notes of citrus, grass, floral, woody, and subtle bitterness while the end and aftertaste is quite lasting with woody and grassy hop flavor. The fruity hop is more assertive when the beer starts to warm.

The body is medium with some crisp and moderate carbonation through the palate, quite smooth through the mouthfeel with quite refreshing touch and a dry finish.

Crisp, clean, and tasty overall with good balance between malt and hop, it is so sessionable brew.

330ml bottle into 350ml beer glass.

Poured a clear light brown, with a loose one finger head that dies and keft a few big, loose bubbles.

A little tropical fruit on the nose and some buscuit malt aroma. Not expressive or complex but OK.

Palate is nice with some tropical fruit and nice malts. Some bitterness on the fiish. Well balanced/

Mouth is very nice - quite creamy.

Overall a very nice, well-balanced beer. Let down by how it looks.

On tap at brewery. Very grainy, cereal nose and taste. Pale golden body, clear with small airy white head. Elements of kolsch, if body was lighter. Slick and creamy

From bottle, citrus and tropical-leaning fruits balanced by sweeter caramel and biscuity malts. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Very nice and enjoyable.

It is what it is. And it will struggle to find a place as it is not value for money (neither low cost or quality for price). But inoffensive

Format: an embossed 330mL brown bottle with a reasonable label.

Appearance: pours out a light yellow with fine carbonation visible across the profile. Not much in the way of head - just a thin cap on top.

Aroma: a pleasant aroma of grapefruit citrus, passionfruit and sweet malts. Promises plenty.

Taste: and delivers. More grapefruit and definite passionfruit up front, with some sweet honey and malts. A really nice beer.

Aftertaste: the sweetness lingers through, but not overpowering. A well-rounded beer.

Mouth feel: light to moderate in body with a comfortable amount of carbonation that carries the flavours fantastically well. Somewhat spritzy, which makes for a refreshing beer.

Overall: yet another well put together beer from Little Creatures. Along with the IPA and Pale Ale, this is one of their mainstays - and in this case is one of my favourites. A good boutique beer for AU$63 a case of 24 x 330mL.
